Swing Low Sweet Chariot
Sam Cooke Lyrics


Oh ah, oh ah
Comin' for to carry me home
Oh ah, oh ah
Comin' for to carry me home

Hmm now swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Right now swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home

I looked over Jordan and what did I see?
Comin' for to carry me home
I saw a band of angels comin' after me
Comin' for to carry me home

That's when I told them swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Hmm, swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home

If you get there before I do
Comin' for to carry me home
Tell all of my friends that I'm comin' on too
Comin' for to carry me home

Hmm, swing low, swing low chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Oh oh oh, swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home

Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down
Sometimes I'm almost to the ground

Hmm, right now swing, swing low chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Hmm, swing, swing low chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Oh, swing, swing low, chariot
Comin' to carry me home
Swing, swing low, chariot
Comin' to carry me home

Hmm, swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home
Hmm, swing low, sweet chariot
Comin' for to carry me home

@Michael Israel 
Joshua 3:15-17
King James Version (KJV)

15 And as they that bare the ark were come unto Jordan, and the feet of the priests that bare the ark were dipped in the brim of the water, (for Jordan overfloweth all his banks all the time of harvest,)
16 That the waters which came down from above stood and rose up upon an heap very far from the city Adam, that is beside Zaretan: and those that came down toward the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, failed, and were cut off: and the people passed over right against Jericho.
17 And the priests that bare the ark of the covenant of the Lord stood firm on dry ground in the midst of Jordan, and all the Israelites passed over on dry ground, until all the people were passed clean over Jordan.



In Joshua's time,the Isrealites crossed the Jordan( River) as they reached the Promised Land.

Probably the best singer who ever lived.

His voice reminds me of the sound of a clarinet moving around, effortlessly.

RIP Sam, we miss you.
